The Background and 'Ethos' of SoundPost

SoundPost is a specialist stringed instrument shop- (we are the 'original Soundpost')- established since 1972. We offer sales of new handmade master instruments, made on the premises, and a selection of antique stringed instruments, and very occasionally some selected student instruments. We also stock and sell sell quality accessories, some unique to SoundPost. A sample selection of our stock is listed on this site, but we also hold many items not listed here- If you do not find what you are looking for, please ask. We are a real 'bricks and mortar' shop, not a 'cyber-shop', so you can visit, by appointment only, to try the instruments or bows in person, and we offer an 'approval period' for most instruments and bows (subject to terms and conditions- bows can be sent out via courier for approval). We invite you to take advantage of our expert knowledge of strings, cases and instruments. Our product knowledge and experience is 'second to none'. Many of our special products are sourced internationally, especially carbon fibre products, and we stock and sell only high quality 'branded' products.

Agencies: We are agents for many fine bows, cases and accessories: These include Arcus bows ( the UK Premier Dealer), Musafia Cases (Premier UK Dealer and Authorized Agent), Jakob Winter Cases, Fiedler products, Bois d'Harmonie Accessories, VioTech products, most major string brands, and many other products, all listed on the relevant pages.

Not all products and instruments we stock are listed on the site however- so if you do not find what you want, call and ask- we may well have it, or know where to get it and can order for you. We are always pleased to discuss and advise. Opening times and all contact details, directions etc. on our 'Contact' page.
